Chuck Waldron was born in the United States, where his literary roots were firmly planted within the midwest. However, Mr. Waldron had no trouble transplanting those roots to Canada 39 years ago, where they continue to grow and thrive.
The author of more than 30 short stories, Chuck Waldron now has three successful novels under his belt, as well as a fourth in the works. His first novel, Tears in the Dust "is a mystery set against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War in 1937". Following that is Remington and the Mysterious Fedora, "a quirky fantasy, a story about what happens when a young man sits at the keyboard of a manual typewriter and puts on an old fedora" and his latest release, Serve Cold, which "spans decades and stretches from the countryside of rural Ontario to a quiet artists’ studio in Tucson, Arizona. With lots of murder and mayhem in between, the story is what happens when a long-standing feud erupts into hot-blooded vengeance".
Chuck Waldron's love for story telling began at a young age and has continued to grow.
“I grew up,” Chuck said, “listening to my grandfather, an Ozark Mountain story teller, spinning tales of the caves on his farm, describing them as hiding places once used by the Jesse & Frank James’ gang. It didn’t matter if the stories were true or not. Those legends set fire to my imagination, creating images that emerged slowly over the years, finally igniting as my short stories and novels.”
If you have not read any of Mr. Waldron's works, I highly recommend that you do!
